The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will host the Clean Fuels & Products Shot™ Summit on April 8, 2024, from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. (EDT), and April 9, 2024, from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (EDT). The virtual event will gather stakeholders across government, industry, academia, and non-profit organizations to engage on the objectives, progress, priorities, and future plans for the seventh DOE Energy Earthshot™. According to DOE, the Clean Fuels & Products Shot aims to lower carbon emissions from the fuels and chemicals industry by using more environmentally friendly carbon sources, targeting a minimum reduction of 85 percent in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions compared to fossil-based sources by 2035. Additionally, it aims to meet 2050 projected demand for 100 percent of aviation fuel; 50 percent of maritime, rail, and off-road fuel; and 50 percent of carbon-based chemicals by using sustainable carbon resources. Summit participants will learn more about “the research, development, and demonstration strategy to establish the United States as a world leader in clean fuel and clean carbon-based chemical production.”
